The Campus Health Center at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) where I did my internship provides care and referral services to the CSUMB community. The campus health center also has medical staff dedicated to meeting patients' needs and concerns. My agency's main goal is promoting health and wellness. Majority of the campus college population are young students who are not aware of diabetes and its long term effects because the college population is not as affected compared to older populations. My project is about bringing awareness to diabetes in the CSUMB community. I did so by creating an educational video on diabetes, what it is, the long term consequences of this disease, lifestyle contributors to diabetes, and how to prevent diabetes. My project met the expected outcomes by educating students on healthier lifestyle choices that would prevent diabetes. The Campus Health Center can help this issue by bringing further awareness to diabetes by doing tabling events on campus and holding educational workshops on diabetes for the community.
